Hardy has been inconsistent this season. He has four multi-hit games and five in which he has been hitless. It all adds up to a 256/.267/.302 stat line. More troubling is that he has yet to homer in 43 at-bats.
The right-handed hurler allowed one unearned run on five hits and one walk, while striking out seven in six innings. Unfortunately, opposing pitcher Aaron Harang was equally as impressive, allowing one run and striking out 11 in six innings.
Eovaldi ran into a little trouble in the first inning, allowing a leadoff single and a one-out walk to Freddie Freeman, but he escaped the jam unscathed.
The Braves got their only run against Eovaldi in the fourth inning. Ryan Doumit had an RBI single after Chris Johnson reached on an error and moved up to second base on a wild pitch.
Eovaldi was in line for the loss until Miami tied the game in the sixth inning. He's allowed just one earned run in his last two starts. Eovaldi will make his next start Wednesday in a rematch with the Braves.
Newly acquired center fielder

It had been speculated that the team would eschew his activation in favor of calling up a reliever to aid an overused bullpen. The Red Sox indeed promoted Alex Wilson.

Sizemore has batted leadoff in each of his last four games and has been placed either there or fifth in every lineup since April 5. But he has struggled mightily since a two-hit game on April 9 raised his batting average to .343. He has one hit in his last 26 at-bats since and has struck out five times in the last four games.
Farrell is hoping to keep Sizemore in the same spot. "Lineup continuity ... is a priority," he said. "That's been hard to accomplish."
"He'll play (Thursday)," Redmond said, per MLB.com. "I think the plan for him, as of right now, is to be [in Jacksonville] for a week."
Feliz pitched horribly in spring training to earn a ticket to the minors. He had been competing for the closer job.
The reliever is off to a flying start this season with just one earned run given up in 10 innings pitched.
Marmol faced three batters before having to leave the game. He got Gerald Laird to ground out and Justin Upton to strike out before issuing a two-out walk to Jason Heyward. After the Heyward walk, Marmol was lifted from the game and replaced by Mike Dunn, who got Andrelton Simmons to strike out to end the inning.
